The central geographical location of Montrose with its excellent road and rail communication links with major cities and its impressive storage facilities make the port the ideal centre for international trade and distribution throughout Scotland and Northern England.
The harbour lies within a mile of open sea and provides a sheltered haven almost half a mile long. There are no tidal restrictions to any of the berths in Montrose which offers around1000 metres of riverside quay. The North Sea Oil and Gas industry has identified Montrose as an important "One-Stop" base with deep water berths, open storage, over 40,000 sq metres of warehousing and office accommodation immediately adjacent to the quaysides.
Montrose Port Authority (MPA) and its oil industry partners on site offer outstanding levels of service to this important industry which successfully shares port facilities with other commercial trades. MPA and its port partners provide a wide range of services to shipping including 24 hour pilotage, bunkering, craneage, stevedoring and ships agencies.
